experiment

I appear to be running an experiment in weight loss. It’s a very good experiment, because it proves out, conclusively, every time. It goes something like this:

If I don’t eat sweets, and do exercise, for a week, I lose about a pound and a half in that time. If I do eat sweets and don’t exercise, I gain about a pound and a half (if I haven’t been exercising for quite a while, I just gradually gain weight, not at that excessive of a rate).

It works *every time*.

Knowing this–and I *do* know it–it should be easy to lose weight. All I have to do is exercise, which I like, and not eat sweets, which I love.

Somehow this is much, much harder than it says on the packaging.

word wars FTW!

Word wars for the win today! I was up early and got 2500 words written before noon, and then had an unexpectedly good word war afternoon and did another 1800, for a total of 4300 words today! *boogies* That puts me at 189 pages, so I should reach my goal of 200 pages tomorrow without much trouble.

We might go watch a bad movie tonight. *cheerful* :)
